Deepika Padukone right now is getting ready for her third collaboration with Sanjay Leela Bhansali in ‘Padmavati’, she will play the role of Rani Padmini in the movie and it is set to release on 1st December. Now, there were reports that Deepika will sign another movie with Bhansali after ‘Padmavati’, where she will portray the role of poet Amrita Pritam. There was no official news on this but it was expected that Deepika will join the cast of this movie.
But now, she rests all the rumours and said that she is surprised that her name even came, she also stated that she wasn’t approached for the role. Well, it looks interesting because she has done three films with Bhansali and it was obvious that Bhansali would have approached her, earlier, Priyanka Chopra was also approached for the same but due to her Hollywood projects things didn’t work out.
Now, it would be interesting to see who will play the female lead in the movie, the male lead is also in question, there are also some names who were approached for the movie, Irrfan Khan, recently revealed that he was approached for the same but it’s not clear as of now, he also that he wants to play the role of Sahir Ludhiyanvi on screen, names like Abhishek Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan are also popping up.
It would be interesting to see who would play the female and male lead in the movie, we can just imagine the awesomeness if Irrfan plays Sahir Ludhiyanvi, he is an incredible actor and watching him as the brilliant poet Sahir Ludhiyanvi will be amazing. Amrita Pritam’s role is also a mystery, will Deepika play the role? We don’t know. It would be interesting to see her though.
